"Spent a few days at maddens during Easter week this year. Rooms were clean and comfortable and had a lovely view of the wild Atlantic way. The food was outstanding and the staff were very helpful and attentive, especially the bar staff one called David and a girl with fantastic knowledge of gins but can’t remember her name. Will definitely be back. Great job guys!"

"It's been nearly 20 years since I was in this bar, fantastic staff, excellent food and drink, there was a one man band there last night, great music but you could still have a conversation. Highly recommend it!"
